Thanks for the review! I was there last summer but they couldn't fit me in for an appointment. I plan to visit them this summer. They told me sky's the limit regarding the price (i.e. 6 digits). I'm afraid if I go directly to tortoise, I may not like the design.
What's the process like? Do you have to go back for a fitting? Do they encourage a first pair in acetate to see if you like the design?

Hopefully the NY Times pictures should show up weekend.
